The Biggest Quail Hunt in History

And the people stood up all that day, and all that night, and all the next day, and they gathered the quails: he that gathered least gathered ten homers: and they spread them all abroad for themselves round about the camp. Numbers 11:32

The people killed quails for 2 full days and 1 night—until the least that gathered had 10 homers (v. 32). Each homer contained 10 baths or 10 ephahs (Ex. 45:11) which would be 10 times 1 bushel and 3 pints (the measure of 1 ephah) or nearly 10 1/2 bushels. One person killing 10 such homers then, would heap himself about 105 bushels of the birds.
